Cheating a bit here....... i took this image a while ago but just refound and edited it for my online gallery and liked its sunshine connotations so much since it has been so overcast and gray here that i decided it was fine to include it for MYSELF.

PROJECT 365 DAY 99 April 9th


Maple syrup processing is coming to a close... doing the last of the sap and the Syrup produced so far is adding up... so far 9 jars and two bottles. For a first effort I am pretty pleased and learned heaps doing it... definitely a sustainable way to produce tasty calories from the Maple tree's and a great experience overall. I cannot recommend enough that other's try it if they have the tree's.

Standing on the back veranda the sun rise just touching the tree's with light and for a few brief moments the view comes alive with a very special look that you have to be up early to catch.
